港珠澳橋五年內難完工
發改委主任斷言 胡應湘唱反調

26/04/2006

【本報記者廣州報道】廣東省發展和改革委員會主任陳善如指,港珠澳大橋自○三年規劃至今,除了考慮口岸選址,亦涉及很多技術及融資問題,需全盤方案,他預期大橋在今後五年的十一五規劃期間內,未必能完工;他也沒有回應大橋何時可以上馬。但最早倡議興建港珠澳大橋的合和實業主席胡應湘在本港則估計,建橋計劃可望今年內拍板,有信心可在三百億元內建成連接三地的單Y橋,預計日後收費每架車每程一百至二百元。

陳善如:雙Y方案不可行
陳善如在廣州會見本港新聞界時謂,他○三年已上任,從未見過港珠澳大橋的雙Y方案,雙Y方案根本不曾存在,他更指雙Y方案不可行,因為環保上涉及水流問題,而司法管轄的問題也不容易解決,究竟是實行一地三檢還是三地三檢?若一地三檢,則應在哪設口岸?若是三地三檢,口岸與口岸之間的「中間地帶」又由哪邊政府負責呢?對於有報道指,由於港珠澳大橋遲遲未能實現,內地有計劃興建深圳至中山的大橋。陳善如斷言表示,在十一五規劃中,沒有這個項目。

另一方面,合和實業主席胡應湘則指,港珠澳大橋雖無列入廣東省「十一五規劃」,但形容大橋現時「萬事俱備」,被卡住的過關和融資問題其實都可解決。胡建議在澳門拱北關閘對開水域填海建造「一地三檢」口岸,過境車輛旅客日後使用港珠澳大橋只需上落車一次,便可完成出入境手續,遠較「三地三檢」方便。

內地專家曾指大橋建費或高達六百億元,嚇怕投資者,胡則有相反看法,不計香港段,內地及澳門段建費可在三百億元內完成,以此價錢合和很樂意承包。他又指深圳與中山亦擬建深中大橋,可與港珠澳大橋並存。

Macau is not very supportive. They are dragging the bridge down.

I really disagree with you. This bridge is actually one of the projects for the Pan Pearl River Delta (PPRD). It helps the development of the Western Guangdong and even the Southwestern Proviences. You may read more info here if you can read Simplfied Chinese.

The bridge is very beneficial to Hong Kong as cargoes from the North-West can easily travel to Hong Kong without going through Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

Problem is, Macau is depending too much on gambling. A main reason why people travel to Macau is to gamble, and they stay at Macau's hotels. Reliable sources tell me that they are predicting that many people will travel to Macau to gamble but stay in HK's hotels once the bridge is completed. Macau now are building too much hotels and thus if the bridge is completed the hotels will die.

Delta bridge built in 3 years, says Sir Gordon
27 April 2006
South China Morning Post

The tycoon who for the past two decades has advocated a bridge linking Hong Kong with Zhuhai and Macau believes the project will take only three years to complete, with any obstacles resolved in six months.

Hopewell Holdings chairman Sir Gordon Wu Ying-sheung's remarks came a day after Guangdong Development and Reform Commission director Chen Shanru said it was "definitely impossible" for the bridge to be ready within the next five years.

Sir Gordon told a seminar at the University of Science and Technology yesterday that technical aspects of building the bridge posed no problem. "But there are some vested interests in Hong Kong who do not want to see the bridge built," he said.

Analysts said Hutchison Whampoa once feared that if the bridge was built, containers may go to terminals near the new link rather than existing port facilities at Kwai Chung and Tsing Yi, where the company had invested heavily.

And Ho Ming-sze, a close aide to tycoon Henry Fok Ying-tung, who has large investments in piers and port facilities in Nansha and Panyu near Guangzhou, said in 2003 the proposed bridge would not be cost effective.

On Tuesday, Mr Chen, who hopes construction work can start next year, said the project still faced two major obstacles - environmental concerns and the need to work out how to share jurisdiction of the bridge with the two special administrative regions, including the establishment of border checkpoints.

Sir Gordon said he was confident the project could start next year, adding that it would only take three years to complete.

He said the idea of the mainland and both special administrative regions performing immigration and customs checks at a shared checkpoint would be a better option than setting up three separate checkpoints at different ends of the proposed bridge.

黃華華冀加快跨界基建

【大公報訊】記者袁秀賢廣州十一日電:廣東省省長黃華華今天下午在廣東省政府迎賓廳接見香港廣東社團總會的「廣東省訪問團」一行時表示,下一步將突出在經貿、跨界基礎設施及民生等方面推進粵港合作。其中備受關注的港珠澳大橋建設,前期工作已差不多完成,要向社會招標。

黃華華說,粵港合作這幾年發展很快,到廣東投資的外資當中,有六成來自香港同胞。沒有香港的支持,廣東沒有今天。廣東的發展離不開香港,香港的發展又離不開廣東,唇齒相依,親如手足,關係非常密切。

黃華華還說,這幾年粵港合作成效更好。去年,粵港外貿進出口達到二千九百多億美元,香港佔七成。廣東七成的外貿進出口通過香港出去(包括轉口貿易);而來自香港的CEPA零關稅進口,佔全國七成;香港個人旅遊中,廣東遊客佔八成。香港廣東社團有許多工商界企業家,在珠三角洲投資,可擴展到東西兩翼。他說,在廣東投資回報絕對好,絕大多數的香港投資者都能掙得錢。

黃華華表示,下一步加大粵港合作力度,將突出在經貿、跨界的基礎設施、民生等五個方面合作,把粵港合作提高到更好的水平、更高的層次。

黃華華還說,跨界的基礎設施合作,粵港兩地頗為關心,需加快進度。西部通道計劃今年底建成,建成後,多了幾個關口,廣東與香港之間的通關更為方便、更通暢。目前,深圳羅湖關是世界第一大關,廣東到香港每天流動約四十萬人,相當於一天移動一個中等城市。

至於穗港深高速鐵路,廣東方面已動工。他說,去年底,廣州到深圳高速鐵路段已經動工,下來香港段的安排,關鍵是路向走向,定下來,就可以加快。這條鐵路建成後,廣州到香港四十分鐘就可以到,人員流動便利。廣深高速鐵路要加快建設。

黃華華透露,備受關注的港珠澳大橋,共二十五個專題,現在完成二十四個,前期工作已差不多,主要是招標。大橋的投資比較大,要靠社會投資,要向社會招標。

倡建隧道 溝通機場屯門


胡應湘倡建隧道接連機場及屯門,以防青馬大橋出現問題,香港對外聯繫會斷絕。 資料圖片




【本報訊】(記者 曾少妍)在一個有關「香港會否邊緣化」的論壇上,合和實業主席胡應湘表示,香港應加強與內地基建融合,及繼續發展本土基建,以提升本港競爭力,並倡議興建屯門至機場的隧道,透過未來的西部通道與珠三角進行直接貨物運輸,減低被邊緣化的機會。

 胡應湘昨日在會上表示,內地基建發展迅速,公路系統由79年的零公里發展至今天的3萬公里,能夠與本港青馬大橋媲美的大橋建設也多達50多條;反觀本港大型基建項目卻在97年開始停滯不前。他說,從來沒有一個國家或地區會出現「基建飽和」:「除非你做到無塞車,自來水供應好,污染完全解決,但那個地方叫做人間樂園。」

促建港珠澳橋 減低被邊緣化

 他贊成本港應盡快與內地落實興建港珠澳大橋,相信可減低香港被邊緣化的機會,並促請特區政府發展一條隧道,銜接屯門與國際機場的交通,以防青馬大橋出現問題,癱瘓本港運作。「呢條橋有咩風吹草動,香港對外的聯繫因此斷絕。你想想後果如何?」

 他認為,有關隧道發展既可保證機場運作不受影響,亦可充分發揮機場空運效應,「珠江三角洲的貨物,可以通過西部通道完成直接運輸,這就是發揮經濟效益及效率。」

 他說,自己未有機會與特首曾蔭權提出有關隧道的構思,但坦言昔日向前特首董建華提出後,政府雖說會作研究,但至今卻毫無進展。

 胡應湘又批評當局往往借需求問題妨礙基建發展,反而常聽顧問意見胡亂花錢,「個顧問話迪士尼樂園好喎,一下子便使錢;顧問話機場展覽廳好喎,又使錢落去。」

劉兆佳籲兩地 加強基建融合

 另一與會者中央政策組首席顧問劉兆佳,也認同兩地加強基建融合發展,有助兩地未來整體經濟合作。「我認同要搞好內地經濟融合,基建工程一定要夠,特別是交通運輸。」他重申,無論香港及廣東均存在經濟合作意向,雖然兩地在合作中仍存在競爭,但港人應樂觀面對合作關係。

 他續說,面對長三角崛起的威脅,珠三角發展同樣有迫切性,由於香港在「一國兩制」下存在優勢,相信本港能夠在整個珠三角的發展上發揮重要作用。

 「我相信香港與廣東的合作前景不錯,不要因為港珠澳大橋還未搞掂,就以為兩地發展是勢成水火。應該看整個局面。」

FTU to urge action on cross-border projects
Carrie Chan
20 May 2006
Hong Kong Standard

The troubled Hong Kong-Macau- Zhuhai bridge plan will be brought to the attention of Vice President Zeng Qinghong in the middle of next week by a leading pro-Beijing trade union as part of discussions on a variety of issues relating to cross-border cooperation between the governments of the SAR, Shenzhen and Guangdong province.

Cheng Yiu-tong, chairman of the Federation of Trade Unions and also an Executive Council member, said Friday that they hoped to reflect the urgency required to get these cross-border projects moving again when they meet with central leaders and concerned ministries during a four-day visit to Beijing.

``Some hurdles regarding the bridge plan remain despite a detailed feasibility study and Beijing having given the green light,'' he said.

``It seems to be hampered not by financial problems but some other unresolved disputes.

``There are also other outstanding plagued projects like the Western Corridor, which are falling behind schedule.

``Stronger directives from Beijing on closer cross-border cooperation can help resolve the impasse.''

Meanwhile, Zeng and the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office will be called to rule on the impact of a new regulation barring all drivers over 60 years from using cross-border roads, a ruling which could affect the livelihoods of hundreds of local container truck drivers.

Pollution will also be among the subjects the trade unionists plan to discuss in closed-door talks with central leaders.

Cheng said the federation will suggest to Beijing to gather Guangdong and Hong Kong's environmental chiefs for a stronger push on implementing clean air measures.

``Air quality in the south China region and Hong Kong has been sharply deteriorating as a result of the amount of new cars and the building of over 20 new electricity power plants in Guangdong,'' Cheng said.

``I am worried that if both sides fail to achieve the target for the cross-border clean air program, it will become a laughing stock.''

The FTU delegation will also meet top officials of the Home Affairs Ministry, Social Security Ministry, Labor Ministry and All-China Federation of Trade Unions on labor, social, economic and other outstanding issues on economic integration with China.

``The economic summit this September is a proactive move by Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen in a bid to avoid Hong Kong being overshadowed by the mainland's rapid economic development,'' Cheng added.

``We should adopt a new mind-set of humility for changes.

``It is timely to devise an action plan of strategies to tap into the 11th five- year plan for trade and job opportunities.''

Chief denies standstill over bridge
Michael Ng
Hong Kong Standard
Wednesday, May 31, 2006

Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam- kuen has denied suggestions that discussions on the proposed mega- bridge linking Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau are stalemated and insisted that feasibility studies are nearing completion.
In a Radio Television Hong Kong interview Tuesday before he led an 80-strong delegation to Guangxi, he said that because the bridge will straddle three jurisdictions, complications are to be expected but will soon be ironed out.

Tsang's optimism over the 60 billion yuan (HK$58.01 billion) Hong Kong-Macau-Zhuhai project is in direct contrast with the views of a senior Guangdong official who last month said the bridge will not be ready within the next five years.

The province's Development and Reform Commission director, Chen Shanru, said there are numerous obstacles that need to be resolved, such as environmental concerns, the issue of jurisdiction and establishment of border checkpoints. Because of these, Chen said, there is no likelihood the bridge will be completed within the time frame of the mainland's 11th five-year development plan, which ends in 2010.

But Tsang played down these fears.

"Even our smaller infrastructure projects like the Tamar development sparked various concerns and it took us a lot of time to work on it," he said. "For such a large-scale bridge, which straddles the entire Pearl River Delta and three different jurisdictions, one would expect there to be many technical and financial issues that have to be resolved.

"But we are already close to finishing our feasibility study and once the design of the border checkpoints and the financing issues are resolved, I believe progress will be smoother."

Tsang would not be drawn on whether it is possible that construction will begin next year, but said he expects swift progress once potential investors are satisfied with the bridge's design.

Tsang also spoke of his nine-day Labor Day vacation up north in eastern cities such as Wuxi, Nanjing and Shanghai. He said he was impressed with the Yangtze River Delta development and amazed at the new container terminals in Shanghai.

"I can foresee that it will be difficult for ports in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta region to capture exports from eastern China," he said.

"The challenge for us is to ensure that Hong Kong container ports have the ability to match the ports in eastern China in future."

Tsang appealed to the local business sector to cooperate with adjacent provinces in the Pearl River Delta to create more business opportunities rather than to get involved in vicious competition.

"The country has clearly positioned Hong Kong as a finance, logistics and trading center," he said.

"In the meantime, we have witnessed swift development in Guangdong, which possibly may take away part of our business opportunities on the mainland.

"But I believe this is a healthy development. We have to further develop our strengths and strive for the best possible opportunities in our regional development."

Tsang said he does not think Hong Kong will be marginalized by the mainland's rapid economic development because the public is aware of possible competition and will not be complacent.

中央支持建港珠澳大橋
港滇首辦一程多站麗江遊

05/06/2006

【本報記者雲南昆明報道】港珠澳大橋遲遲未「拍板」動工,但中央發展和改革委員會副主任杜鷹昨日與特首曾蔭權會面時重申,中央支持興建港珠澳大橋,各方將加緊努力推動。此外,香港與雲南昨日簽訂了一共十三項有關物流及旅遊合作的諒解備忘錄,包括同意以「一程多站」模式,開辦香港與雲南麗江的旅遊路線,預料可吸引更多外國長途旅客到港滇兩地旅遊。

曾蔭權昨日從廣西轉抵雲南昆明,下午與晚上出席了六項官式活動,先後與廣東省省長黃華華、雲南省省長徐榮凱及湖南省省長周伯華會面,重頭戲是與杜鷹的會面。

黃華華讚領導有方
曾、杜會面原定只有四十五分鐘,最終談了近一小時。杜鷹會後表示,與曾蔭權談了共同關心的問題,談得很好。據了解,杜鷹在會上重申中央支持興建港珠澳大橋,各方將加緊努力推動,而曾蔭權則向杜鷹了解「十一五」規劃內容,並介紹了他將會在港舉辦一個「十一五」規劃經濟高峰會。

與黃華華會面時,黃盛讚曾蔭權積極推動「9+2」泛珠三角合作,又指出香港勢頭大好,全靠曾蔭權領導有方,尤其是曾提出的強政勵治,已初見成效,令曾的威望愈來愈高,但他沒有回應是否支持曾蔭權連任。

黃華華又指出粵港未來合作的重點包括加強橫琴區域發展、加快深港西部通道後期工作、積極做好港珠澳大橋前期工作及加強環保、食物生及文化方面的合作。

此外,港滇昨日簽訂了十三項諒解備忘錄,其中七份關於物流業、五份關於旅遊業、一份是麗江市政府與港龍航空公司的合作意向書,爭取早開通香港與麗江之間的直航服務。根據有關諒解備忘錄,香港將與雲南首次開辦「一程多站」的模式旅遊路線,雲南首選的景點是麗江的大研古城、玉龍雪山及四方街等,十一月會舉辦試團,邀請外國旅行社參加。

出席儀式的旅發局主席周梁淑怡表示,許多東南亞國家都有「一程多站」的旅遊路線,現時港滇加強合作,相信可吸引更多外國長途旅客到訪兩地。

I wish they'll build the bridges as a clear tube so it can operate during typhoon. That would be cool.

And if the undersea part can be like that too, then people can see the bottom of the sea as they drive through.

Delta boom a win for HK, says Tsang
31 May 2006
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong stands to gain rather than lose out as the government prepares to tackle challenges arising from rapid economic development in the Pearl River Delta, the chief executive says.

While the city might suffer in areas such as logistics and trade, Donald Tsang Yam-kuen said its leading role in aviation and finance remained strong.

He was speaking in an RTHK interview ahead of leading an 80-strong Hong Kong delegation to Guangxi and Yunnan for the Pan Pearl River Delta forum, which starts on Monday.

Mr Tsang believed Hong Kong and the mainland could complement each other, as the two economies were fundamentally different.

"Of course, we are not free of challenges {hellip} Our businesses might be diverted away, such as in the area of logistics and trade. But I am sure this is healthy development," he said.

"The concern is whether our competitiveness could be retained in light of the scale and depth of the rapid development on the mainland. I believe our sense of crisis has been enhanced. I am not very worried that Hong Kong would be marginalised, but I encourage people to face it in a serious manner."

Mr Tsang said Hong Kong's strengths in finance and shipping were unique. He was also upbeat over the city's leading role in the aviation industry in the region. With flights to the mainland continuing to grow, he said there was room for further development.

Mr Tsang denied the government was delaying the proposed bridge linking Hong Kong to Macau and Zhuhai . The project was raised while his predecessor, Tung Chee-hwa, was in office but is still under discussion.

"The scale of the project is huge. Our projects of smaller scale, like Tamar, have caused so much controversy. It's a bridge spanning the Pearl River. Many technical issues are involved."

Mr Tsang yesterday met representatives from professional organisations to discuss opportunities arising from the Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement with the mainland and China's 11th Five-Year Programme.

Hong Kong's sustained economic development would depend on whether the service sector could move up the value-added chain and expand its market share on the mainland, he said.

Breakthrough for Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge

HONG KONG, Aug 2, 2006 (AFP) - Hong Kong leader Donald Tsang on Wednesday said he has achieved a breakthrough in talks on plans to build a multi-billion dollar bridge linking south China's Zhuhai city with Hong Kong and Macau.

Tsang said the preparation work for the construction of the bridge will be accelerated and the bridge will have seperate custom clearing systems.

"It's the agreement which represents a breakthrough. It's the agreement on the ways we deal with the custom clearance system," Tsang said following a meeting with top Guangdong officials including its governor Huang Huahua.

He said construction work will proceed as soon as both paries obtained approval from the Chinese government.

Tsang said all goods vehicles going across the bridge must go through customs before entry in order to protect security of the bridge, expected to cost some 31.5 billion yuan (3.8 billion dollars).

"Our determination to proceed with the construction work ... I think we are now seeing the end of the tunnel," he added.

The proposed 29-kilometre (18-mile) bridge is considered a way of easing congestion at border crossings between Hong Kong and mainland China and is also seen as important to Hong Kong's future economic development.
